Gratitude changes attitudes in kids
Many children in our world today have bad attitudes. These attitudes affect how parents, teachers, and church leaders treat them.
Kids of divorce are no exception. As a result of all they’ve been through, many become bitter and sad. Those who deal with them interpret their bitterness and sorrow as an attitude problem. If children of divorce don’t learn how to find joy, they run the risk of being labeled uncooperative, bitter, aloof, negative, etc. As a result, they won’t have the same opportunities as those who are more pleasant. These children will also likely have more discipline problems.

American Association of Christian Counselors National Conference

At the same time I was able to share what God has been doing through The Big D, Slippery Slope games and introduce the Journey Through Divorce website.
